In response to public outcry for laws forcing employers to get workers home safely at night, a number of companies have said they’ll voluntarily review policies.

Concerns about late-shift safety were stirred last month after the killing of an Ottawa teenager.

Jennifer Teague, an 18-year-old employee of Wendy’s restaurant chain, was last seen walking home along a bike path around 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 8, after the end of her shift.
